Hosted by the Junior League of Colorado Springs, the Reach Your Peak Run, Walk & Stroll promotes healthy living and enjoying the great outdoors with a community-centered, family-friendly 5K along the Pike's Peak Greenway Trail. Racers gather at 9 a.m. to claim goody bags full of T-shirts and coupons to local businesses before embarking on an invigorating jaunt through stunning Colorado scenery. Participants can choose to run, walk, or jog depending on their fitness level and whether or not they're being chased by an overly friendly bear.

With the lapping of river tides as its soundtrack, the state-certified guides of Breckenridge Adventure Tours lead groups during private, all-inclusive expeditions into the wild. The passion they exude is helped along by the drive of owner Eric Carlson, who has spent the better part of his life exploring the outdoors. Such know-how comes in handy on rafting adventures, such as whitewater runs atop the Colorado and Arkansas Rivers, and on fishing trips, which bend around the skills of both beginner and advanced anglers. Together, Eric and his team enrich trips with their knowledge of local history, flora, and fauna that demonstrates their vast experience and direct access to Mother Nature?s journal.

Amid the crisp, thinning mountain air steeped in the aroma of pine trees, a single-track trail winds through a dense evergreen forest past sweeping views of the valley below. In 2005, wilderness enthusiast Stefan Van der Steen founded Denver Adventures as a means of introducing others to scenes such as this by immersing them in the great outdoors through adventures such as ziplines, hiking treks, and rafting excursions. Stefan and his team of knowledgeable guides lead groups to an elevation of 8,000 feet for zipline tours on an Association for Challenge Course Technology–certified course, where riders reach speeds up to 50 miles per hour past Colorado’s naturally blurry trees. Denver Adventures also leads hiking, snowshoeing, and mountain-biking treks through the uneven terrain, gauging participants' skill throughout to determine whether they can traverse a steep uphill climb or do a Superman seat grab over a row of sleeping bears. Making use of all the wilderness has to offer, guides also take explorers on rafting trips through canyons and past gold mines, or train them to navigate vertical routes using top-rope techniques during five-hour rock-climbing excursions.

Outer Edge Performance's herd of vertically inclined guides combines more than 50 years experience and multiple safety accreditations that ensure safe climbs at venues such as Boulder Canyon and Garden of the Gods. Student climbers slip on provided footwear, helmets, and harnesses before instructors spend four hours teaching small groups of five or fewer how to safely smear a slab and tame wild sediment. In addition to mastering rock faces, students build teamwork by ensuring peers' safety and double-checking their equipment. For an added challenge, ice climbers prepare to summit more slippery surfaces during the ice-climbing trip. Four hours of deft arctic instruction teach pupils to scale ice-covered terrain using specialized equipment including sharp ice axes, spiked crampons, and a pocket dictionary of yeti-speak.
